The gloominess of Winter is finally getting lifted in few weeks. We are excited to catch the vibrant Spring. Fret not as Spring is not too far from now. We can already see some buds coming and the crisp air of the new season is slowly making its presence felt.

If your mantle decoration has been stale for a while with all that wood burning to warm the whole place, maybe it time to clean the fireplace and start updating the decor to bring more vivid colours of Spring come to life.

Here are some inspirations I have taken from Pinterest to give you the right nudge on what to put on your mantle, what colour best compliment with what for Spring, and how to combine what you already have at home to create that perfect, lively Spring themed mantle decoration.

Small and flowers

Small house plants and vase full of flowers are good decorations to top your mantle after a long gloomy winter spell. It’s time to bring in some life into your home and add fine scent of sweetness too.

Some florists may already have early blooms for spring that you can put in a vase to accentuate your mantle. If you cannot find flowers at this time, put some small succulents plants in tiny and cute pots and line up your mantle to look like a little spring forest.

Candelabras and candles

We are very done with winter’s gray spell. It’s time to bring in the light with natural amber coming form beautiful candles and some sparkly or even rustic candelabras to hold those candles in place. You can use scented candles as well to let the sweet smell of spring linger at home.

There are plenty of big lanterns in the home depot that brings extra drama while adding beauty to your home. I found some really nice lanterns that can be used to hold bigger candles or just act as plain decoration to spice up your mantle for spring.

Banners are not just used to adorn a place when there are special events. You can also cut up some nice pictures, words to spell out Spring, or tie up old, spare fabrics on a yarn to add colour to your mantle place.

Eggs and other figurines

Spring is often associated with Easter because the latter usually happens during the period of Spring time. And with Easter decorations proliferating the home depot areas, it is so nice to brighten up the mantle place with either Spring or Easter themed decors.

You can choose some cute egg decors, or some bunny figurines to place on top of the mantle as your focal point. You can also use other spring related figurines like birds, and other critters.

Who says mommies cannot be stylish while doing errands for the whole family? Being a mom entails a lot of hard work, patience, time, effort, and sacrifices. Oftentimes, these sacrifices will include the right to look and be decent for our family and to the rest of the society.

Mommies can be very busy with a lot of things in their plate to handle. However, I seriously believe that even if mommies’ appointment books are brimming with activities and errands to fulfill, we should still look our very best.

Rubber shoes and the athleisure wear is the perfect combination look for the active mommies.

What You Need To Qualify For Debt Consolidation

Many people suffer from stress that is brought on by their debts, and these times can be very nerve-wracking, especially if you have a family. There is a wealth of advice freely available on the website which you may find useful if you are struggling with your personal finances. One option that may be open to you is to consider a consolidation loan, which will lump all of your debts into one easy manageable monthly payment, which can also potentially save you money by paying less interest. However, these types of loans are not suitable for everyone, and there are criteria to match to qualify for this kind of loan. So, who will quality for a consolidation loan?

Owners Of Collateral

If you have collateral, then you will find that it is much easier to get accepted for a loan. There are many people across the country each year that will get refused a loan because they do not have any collateral. If you own a vehicle or property, then this can be used as security against any loan that you take out. It is worth pointing out though that if you default on the loan, then you will also be at risk of losing the item that you put up as collateral against your loan.

People With Good Credit History

You will also find it easier to get loans for debt consolidation from Debt Fix or similar companies if you have a good credit history. You will often find that having no credit history is considered just as bad as having an atrocious one by the financial institutions, so if you have things like a car loan, mobile phone, or other forms of small credit, then this can help you to get a consolidation loan if you require one.

Those Who Earn A Decent Living

You will find that it is also much simpler to get a consolidation loan if you have a good job that pays well. Many people will get refused for a consolidation loan if their amount of debt is 40% or more of their total earnings, so having a good salary will make it easier to lend money when you need to. Of course, it is also simpler to get into debt when you earn more money as many companies will make it easier for you to run up large bills, so it is something with which you need to be careful.

Applicants Who Don’t Have Too Much Debt

You will be the perfect applicant for a consolidation loan if you have collateral, earn a respectable wage, and also do not have too much debt already. As mentioned above, finance companies do not like their customers to have too much debt, so as long as their level of debt is manageable and the applicant earns a decent living, you should be able to apply for and receive a consolidation loan.

Just remember that it is worth your time and effort to shop around and make sure that you get the best deal possible, as no two financial companies are the same. With a good credit history and regular money coming into your account, getting a loan to consolidate all of your debts should be simple, helping you to get your head above water and rid yourself of debt once and for all.




Preparing Your Home For A Spring Kitchen Remodel

As the Winter comes to an end, the planning that homeowners have been doing surrounding their remodel ideas will start to be put into action. Remodeling in the Spring is a great idea because it gives you the rest of the year indoors and outdoors to enjoy the work that has been done.

Here are some ways that you can get ready for a Spring Kitchen remodel this year:

Have a 3D model built for you:

If you have ever been cabinet shopping before, you will likely remember that a lot of cabinet showrooms have beautiful kitchen display units already built. So it is possible to travel around to different showrooms and view the latest designs by local manufacturers. At the same time at companies like, they stock all their inventory in their warehouse in Pennsylvania, but they display it all online. In order to help you to make the best possible choice, they have an online 3D Model option that will allow you to create 3D models of what you want with a consultant for free. Once you have your model, you can compare it with what you intended to do so that you can validate that it is the best choice for you.

Consider refacing as an option:

When you reface your cabinets, you continue to use the exact same cabinet configuration in your kitchen. The upgrade is where you pull the wood off the facing and then pull the door and drawer faces off and replace them with a new design, style, and color. An installation like this takes almost no time. Normally the homeowner that requested the upgrade will end up saving quite a bit of money on affordable quality cabinets that end up looking like they are installed custom cabinets when they are done.

Use customer service online to help you design:

You are likely pretty busy. You don’t have time to run around to 100 stores hoping that you will bump into the perfect cabinets for your home. If you decide instead to purchase your cabinets online at a place like, feel free to use their customer service to answer any questions that you have about the design process. Stores that are online to help you save money often staff their website with expert employees that can give you pointers that will save you time and money
